Wherever you go, you will likely find unique cheeses that are special to the area. You probably know about French cheeses and Italian ones, as well as American and Swiss. But English cheese is also a favorite among cheese connoisseurs for its delicious, rich taste. If you haven't tried English cheese, it may be time to give it a try and find out just how decadent it really is.

There are many kinds of English cheese, each with its own texture, taste, and appearance. Although English cheeses might not be the first to come to mind when you consider cheese, these dairy delights are nonetheless a delicious, high-quality choice to complement many recipes and snack possibilities.

This cow's milk cheese is extremely old, originating in the 12th century, and can be red, blue, or white.

Yorkshire Blue is a ewe's milk cheese that tends to have a flaky and crumbly texture. There are many, many other types of English cheeses as well, all waiting for you to give them a try!

When choosing cheese to buy, pay close attention to quality so that you get the best taste possible. Avoid cheese that appears hard or cracked, and try to get it freshly cut. Experimenting with new cheese tastes can be a great experiences. Remember to give English cheese a try next time you are interested in enjoying a new type of cheese!
